Call for Submissions: Economic Warfare and the Crusades

Thursday, August 8, 2019   (0 Comments)

Edited by Stefan Stantchev, series Croisades Tardives, general editor Daniel Baloup

Presses Universitaires du Midi, Toulouse

Currently featuring commitments from twelve scholars from twelve countries, Economic Warfare and the Crusades is an international effort to examine the employment of negative economic means for the furthering of “crusading” goals across all theaters of crusading from the second half of the thirteenth to the late sixteenth century.

The goal of the volume is to frame the subject, synthesize what is known, offer a number of case studies, and articulate methodologies and questions for further research. The volume’s intended audience is very broad: specialists, generalist historians, political scientists with interest in the past, students of history at both the college and graduate level, and generally educated people with an interest in the history of crusades. We are specifically looking for contributions in the following areas:

  • Economic statecraft in the Middle Ages: a general overview
  • Methods of inquiry: History, Archeology, and/or Political Science and the study of economic warfare
  • The human cost of economic warfare (whether examined in legal or humanistic terms)
  • Economic warfare waged by targets of crusading such as Muslim or Orthodox Christian polities
  • Topics related to economic infrastructure or money flows
  • Slavery, slave trade, and economic warfare
  • The Hospitallers and economic warfare


Timeline: proposals are due Oct 15, 2019 to stefan.stantchev@asu.edu. Chapters due in early 2022.

Proposals (400–700) words need to articulate the question(s) of interest and introduce the source base. Overview chapters need to be in the 6,000–8,000 word range; case studies should be under 12,000 words.
